    This year, we’re going to try something different for the month of August: we’re going to take the month off. Fret not, the site’s not going anywhere bad. But, we think — especially coming off of the vortex that was San Diego Comic-Con — this is a good time for our team to step back, recharge and retool a bit. So we’re going to hit the beach, grab some mojitos, help Arturo celebrate his birthday this Saturday (send well-wishes to him here) and we’ll catch you on the flip side — specifically, Tuesday Sept. 2, with new content and ready to roll…

    Pressure has always been applied to authors to “conform” to the conventions of their time. And there have always been those who want to BAN anything that OFFENDS them. Ironically, (and hypocritically) the very same people who ridicule those who would ban (or burn) books they find offensive/subversive/dangerous are the first to point indignant fingers at those who use language (or, worse, espouse ideas) that offend them. No society that yields to such forces from either the right or left of the political spectrum will long remain a democracy. Political correctness has reached an…

Beyond the overwhelmingly barren architecture most buildings display to the public, most would assume there is nothing visually odd about the settings. But the figurative blood that runs through the bodies differs. Some are on the verge of going into shock, while others possess platelet-rich plasma and function quite well.

    I've had to be three people this week. They exist separately, in spaces that I'm better off keeping discrete for the sake of my own health. There's the guy who checks in at Kotaku and acts like nothing's wrong. There's the father who makes sure his kid is smiling and growing as much as possible. And there's the black person who is appalled at the ugliest truths of America. Read more...

    20 Aug 2014 | 7:08 am
    Since our inception, our nation struggled with some form of racism, slavery and segregation being the two most notable manifestations. Much blood, sweat, toil, and wealth were spent righting these moral wrongs. Thank God, Americans before us were willing to end these injustices.

    Ferguson: Monday and Beyond A struggle is going on in Ferguson, MO. It is the struggle for the hearts and minds of the youth, especially the black youth. And as that youth goes, so goes the youth of America. Until now, the main strategy a combination of propaganda and outright intimidation repression. The propaganda came from the TV, the radio and “respectable” society, which preached that the only goal in life should be money, cars, and good times. Since millions of black youth knew that this was denied to them, then intimidation and outright repression was needed on a mass scale. From…

    Rather than waiting until the specific details concerning the #MichaelBrown case were released- like the specifics of the autopsy, the detailed officers report, the toxicology report or the result of an investigation into Brown’s death- Ferguson residents decided to act. Not having learned anything from the media circus that accompanied and manipulated the previously exploited racial cause celebre, Trayvon Martin, locals took to the streets with retread chants of “justice,” homemade signs of protest, and a willing media hoping to exploit Brown’s death at the hands of- at that time- an…

    At this point you already know what is going on in Ferguson, Missouri. So I don’t need to give you the details. (If you don’t know whats going on then you obviously have been living under a rock – a rock on the moon). It seems like everybody has an opinion and that everybody has weighed in on the issues at hand (how could you not do this). However one of the best responses I have heard about some of the issues behind what is going on, specifically the race issue, has come from Matt Chandler, lead pastor of The Village: This morning I tweeted out two sentences that were in…
  • UPDATE: Guatemalan Children Get Six-Month Reprieve on Deportation

    NDLON poster Yesterday, I juxtaposed three immigration stories in my post– the sad news about the murder of 5-10 Honduran refugee children that the US deported recently, the plight of a young Guatemalan mother and her three children who crossed the border alone and are facing deportation, and the callous reaction to the child refugee crisis by some Arizona Congressional delegates. Today, I’m heartened to report that Modesta Escalante’s three children were granted another six months in the US– time to make their case regarding asylum. Modesta is not alone. Thousands of…

  • Racist, Immoral Dehumanization of Immigrant Children

    Maria Chavez
    29 Jul 2014 | 4:07 pm
    TweetThere are two main challenges in addressing the border issue of increased numbers of undocumented children traveling alone from Central America to the US. The first is that the dehumanization of Latinos in the US has been so tremendously successful that a basic call for decency and humanity is absent from the conversations surrounding this situation. For example, I recently highlighted the issue in an op-ed to a local newspaper and the comments reveal people hiding their racism behind arguments of “legal” and “illegal.” An absence of decency and humanity can also be seen in the…
  • Not Just Symbolic: The Harm of Indian Mascots

    TweetWhen seeing the dancing “Redskin” Wahoo fan below, many Americans think it’s okay as it’s “just fun,” or it is some kind of twisted way to “honor” Indians, or it’s “only a symbol” not meant to hurt anyone. However, there are real, pernicious effects coming from the public display and theatrical racism of these symbols and “race” costumes and all the antics that are an integral part of their use and history.

  • Danny Glover reads Frederick Douglass’ “The Meaning of July 4th”

    TweetThis time of year, we commemorate the famous speech “The Meaning of July Fourth for the Negro,” written by Frederick Douglass and delivered in Rochester, NY on July 5, 1852. In this famous speech, Douglass says: “What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer; a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sound of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your…
  • George Will, White Elites, Justify Use of “Redskins”

    TweetWhite elites who first developed the terminology of Indians, Savages and Redskins, are now desperately trying to justify that racist language. George Will has been the latest to weigh in on this defense of racial privilege and hegemony, while abusing the English language. In a column titled “The government decided ‘Redskins’ bothers you“,  Will arrogantly dismisses the controversy as the result of “some people” who are “professionally indignant” and chides what he sees as the overreach of government into being coercive “about wedding…
